A real man knows how to say he’s sorry, which is exactly what Dice-K did after a shaky, 5-inning homecoming on Opening Day in Tokyo. “I’d like to apologize to all the fans who turned out today and wanted to see me go deep into the game,” he said. Matsuzaka also apologized to Terry “Tito” Francona for arguing with him when the Red Sox manager took the Japanese pitcher out of the game.
Not that he needed to say he was sorry. Sure, he had a lackluster outing in front of a hometown crowd, but pitchers have lackluster outings. Making this gesture to the fans, however, is so rare and so special, and is yet another reason why I. LOVE. DICE. K.
